Compared to a base elemental mod (+90%) in terms of raw damage, Auger Strike becomes more effective when a weapon's Puncture damage exceeds 75% of total weapon damage. This does not take damage type multipliers into consideration.
Auger Strike is the first in a three-member series of 120% melee physical damage mods in which the first letter of each mod forms the series "A-B-C".
It is the only mod in this series not to be offered as a periodic sale item by Baro Ki'Teer.
Similar to its cousins, this mod's artwork depicts its modeling Warframe, Nyx, with her Immortal body skin.
